The valet parking mafia in Downtown Beirut

Check out this special report prepared by Rami El-Amine from Al-Jadeed about the valet parkers in Downtown Beirut and how they overpower the parking meter attendants in the area.

Those people take your car and park it anywhere in Downtown Beirut and they never mind the parking meter attendant since those usually never dare to fine a car with a valet parking ticket on it, and don’t ask why! And if a car ever got fined, the valet parker just throws away the fine and hand you the car as if nothing happened. But you of course end up paying it double time at the mecanique.

 

 

If this report is not enough reason for you to stop using the valet parking service then I don’t know what is, I know it’s impossible sometimes, but I personally always try to park my car by myself even if I had to walk for a few minutes to reach my destination.

The fourth part of this report is due tonight by the way.

Update:

Here’s the fourth and last part of the report.

    There are many reports about the violatons of the valet parking companys. since i saw the report about how they drive the cars and what things they do from speeding to stealing etc i try to avoid the valet aprking as much as possible because most of them are simply 7aramiye as the one in this report. good job new tv! its sad to see a f*** valet parking company owned by somebody in power that makes it stronger than the police which doesnt care for this issue.

    ps: the parking meters arent 100% legal too because they also have a story which is not that good on how they got the contract etc…

    God bless Lebanon

    Am I the only one who thought that his choice of words (and dialect) almost ruined the whole report ?

    not only the Park Meter company don’t dare to fine a car with a valet parking ticket on it, but also the police don’t dare too.
